Cloud Gaming Discussion
« on: April 25, 2016, 03:19:32 AM »
Been interested in this sort of thing lately so I decided to share it.

Summary of Cloud gaming:
Quote
Cloud gaming, sometimes called gaming on demand, is a type of online gaming. Currently there are two main types of cloud gaming: cloud gaming based on video streaming and cloud gaming based on file streaming. Cloud gaming aims to provide end users frictionless and direct play-ability of games across various devices.

THE GRAVEYARD:



http://onlive.com/

Quote
OnLive was a Mountain View, California-based provider of cloud visualization technologies. OnLive's flagship product was its cloud gaming service, which allowed subscribers to rent or demo computer games without installing them on their device. Games were delivered to OnLive's client software as streaming video rendered by the service's servers, rather than rendered locally by the device. This setup allowed the games to run on computers and devices that would normally be unable to run them due to insufficient hardware, and also enabled other features, such as the ability for players to record and spectate gameplay.

(video is out of date, if anyone finds a video of the newer version of OnLive, I'll replace this video with that)

While it seems like a good idea, I oppose it. Simply because it would mean no modding and we don't own the games.

I'm already a bit familiar with this, since it's the only way you can play RE Revelations 2 online co-op. Interesting, but I'm not sure if this has a future or not.

LiquidSky is actually much more open than you think. Once Windows 8.1 is released for  you can play around with a full Windows desktop environment so you can install Steam, Origin or Uplay so you can play YOUR games.

You can even install your own games without a client like Steam or Origin. I know this because I played around with LiquidSky while it was in its free Beta phase (it is still technically in Beta, but you have to buy the Gamer or Pay What You Want plans, which are both reasonably priced), and I was able to do whatever. I think the same thing can be applied to Leap Computing, but I am not sure how it compares to LiquidSky as it cannot be accessed by the public just yet.

(also don't download torrents on LiquidSky or you will get banned)

- An Unlimited plan was added.
